This is a dining room table that I recently finished, built of elm that was planted in Walla Walla by the first pioneers in 1840. I call it ‘guilt free old growth’. It’s all twice-quartersawn, and just magnificent, wood-wise.
The table was patterned after a desk originally designed by Kevin Rodel, a famous Arts and Crafts author and contemporary furnituremaker. He called the piece I patterned mine off of as his ‘Taliesen Desk’.
